Unwanted Thoughts
I've been experiencing unwanted thoughts related to cheating. I don't want to cheat. Most recent thought: I was imagining I wanted to be hugged on the waist by my boyfriend, and then the thought suddenly was telling me that the person wasn't my boyfriend (told me someone else's name that I also know). But I still imagined deciding to drag the hand to my waist (but doesn't mean that I wanna be hugged by another person). Then I tried to identify the person's face, it tried to change the face to my boyfriend's face. Then I didn't wanna get hugged anymore (but doesn't mean that I don't wanna be hugged by my boyfriend). In that thought, the person wasn't my boyfriend, or another person whose name was said either, because the face was unidentified. I don't want to get hugged by other people or certain person that's not my boyfriend but I don't know why I was still deciding to drag the person's hand to my waist in that thought when the bad thought had told me the person was another person.

I think, you are seeking love and attention from other people because, you aren't getting it from your own set of people. You could seek a professional support to understand it better.

Dear mam I can see that you are quite concerned about your thoughts. However, it is quite common for people to have fantasies about others while they are in a committed relationship. Please stop feeling guilty about these thoughts. However, if these thoughts are quite frequent and distressing and are interfering with your life and your relationship with your boyfriend, please see a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation to understand what is going on. Thanks Regards Dr Ankita Mishra
